safran can be distinguished by a harmonious combination of elegance, sophistication and traditional handicraft. Based on the use of shape of classic, an iconic horgenglarus in-house construction, this seating furniture features the aesthetic reduction characterising the prototype of a chair which fits a host of furnishing styles and atmospheres. At the same time, this 1930’s in-house construction offers a compelling comfort level. The backrest comfortably adapts to your body, encompassing your back while offering sufficient lumbar space so the chair doesn’t push you forwards when you are seated. Back legs and seat frame are made from curved solid timber with a stable and robust construction, perfectly suited for public use. Therefore, Swiss designer and interior decorator Frédéric Dedelley chose safran when he had to select a chair for the "Sternen Grill” at the Zurich Bellevue:
“I chose safran because of its beautiful, curved and very comfortable back rest. It also provides a lot of space for the star motif I designed and which the horgenglarus experts used to embellish the chair”, explains Dedelley.
